TTS190 - Lactate and bioenergetics_ quantifying and improving endurance performance with Shannon Grady

Lactate and bioenergetics: quantifying and improving endurance performance with Shannon Grady | EP#190

Shannon Grady is the founder of GO! Athletics and an expert in the application of bioenergetics, lactate dynamics, and applied physiology for endurance performance optimization. Shannon has worked with over 9000 athletes including Olympic, professional, collegiate, and high school athletes in over 25 sports, and is herself a former professional runner, NCAA All-American, and five-time Team USA Triathlon with 4 Top-10 ITU World Championship finishes.

IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL LEARN ABOUT:

  • The science of bioenergetics and lactate dynamics and how they relate to endurance performance and training
  • The fallacy of traditional lactate testing
  • A systems based training approach based on the individuals range of lactate concentration
  • How many endurance athletes lack at least one system and are therefore bioenergetically limited and therefore compromising their endurance perfomance
  • Training mistakes that lead to bioenergetic deficits and suboptimal performance and training adaptations
  • Nutrition mistakes that lead to bioenergetic deficits and suboptimal performance and training adaptations

TTS189 - Ten high-leverage ways to improve your training and triathlon performance

Ten high-leverage ways to improve your training and triathlon performance | EP#189

Learn about ten extremely important and high-leverage ways to improve your training and triathlon performance. These aspects of the training process are often not in place, in particular in self-coached athletes. If you can start incorporating even a few of them in your training you are pretty much guaranteed to see great improvements in your training and triathlon performance.

IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL LEARN ABOUT:

  • Knowing the purpose of each and every workout
  • Having the right mindset in training to make the most of every workout
  • Prerequisites of successful workouts – mobilisation, hydration status, energy and carbohydrate status, recovery status
  • Using session-RPE to train at the right intensity
  • Focusing on the big picture
  • Balancing your engine and your chassis
  • Getting out of your comfort zone by doing things that you consciously or subconsciously tend to avoid doing in training
  • Using group training strategically
  • Benefiting from the compound effect of coaching, testing, and technical advice

TTS187 - Nitrate loading, marathons, and endurance sports science with prof. Andy Jones

Nitrate loading, marathons, and endurance sports science with prof. Andy Jones | EP#187

Professor Andy Jones is internationally recognized for his work in academia and applied sports science. He has authored more than 280 original research and review articles, worked with the two best marathoners in history (Eliud Kipchoge and Paula Radcliffe) and is perhaps best known for his pioneering work in the use of dietary nitrate (found in e.g. beetroot) and its impact on endurance performance.

IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL LEARN ABOUT:

  • Nitrate loading: what are the benefits and what is the proper protocol for it?
  • Can nitrate loading be done with normal beetroot juice or beetroots, or are specific supplements preferable?
  • Will we see the 2-hour marathon milestone broken soon, and what advances in running should take place for it to happen?
  • Running and endurance performance in large part comes down to three parameters: aerobic capacity (VO2max), economy, and lactate threshold. How should we train to improve these parameters?
  • The Critical Power concept and how it stacks up to Maximum Lactate Steady State.

Anybody can be a Kona qualifier: genetics is not your limiter with Alan Cozens | EP#186

Alan Couzens is a coach and exercise physiologist in Boulder, Colorado. Through his laboratory testing of a large number of athletes over a long time period he has found that triathlon and endurance sports potential (specifically VO2max) is far more trainable and less limited by genetics than what most textbooks and university courses would have us believe. In fact, most triathletes may actually have the potential to qualify for Kona – with the right training.

IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL LEARN ABOUT:

  • How trainable is VO2max really?
  • Why do most athletes fail to reach their athletic potential even though they are putting in a lot of hard work?
  • What is the right way to train to reach your athletic potential?
